It seems a piece of flight MH17 wreckage will be turning up in a museum in Russia. A Russian veterans organization plans to display the piece of wreckage alongside Russian military history items, according to the Associated Press

Residents of the Ukrainian village of Rassypne, where the cockpit of the Malaysia Airlines Boeing landed, gave the fragment to veterans organization Boyevogo Bratstva in the Russian town of Yeisk as a sign of respect, Finat Shaikhulin, the leader of the group, told radio station Ekho Moskvy on Tuesday.

VVD parliamentarian Han ten Broeke wants an explanation. He wants Minister Bert Koenders of Foreign Affairs to immediately make contact with the Russian authorities. According to him, wreckage showing up in a museum shows a lack of respect for the relatives of the MH17 victims.
